You've used a # as the first character in the line .. that means a comment (it's not processed as an entry).

You should try using
Code: [Select]
129.15.108.116  cwop.aprs.net
The example had a # preceding. I'll try without.

Still getting through. Here's exactly how I did it.

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#   127.0.0.1       localhost
#   ::1             localhost

     85.188.1.27         cwop.aprs.net

     44.155.254.4        cwop.aprs.net

     63.251.153.99       cwop.aprs.net

     66.151.32.203       cwop.aprs.net

The hosts file is not very bright in windows or linux .. it uses the first entry that matches the name and returns that IP address.

If it's always working with the 129. servers, then pick one to use it like:

129.15.108.116  cwop.aprs.net

and delete the rest of the entries.. they won't be used.

Done. Whether it works or not, I truly appreciate the time.

Google DNS servers. Then try getting into your router and try using different DNS servers from the default ones currently being used.

Thank you for the tip, however it won't be necessary as the fix above has been absolutely flawless. Not one, single bad address has come up since I used member's dupreezd advice and link, and Ken's tweaking.

Thanks again folks for the help.   UU

I'm glad the hosts file bypassed the issue for you.  You can try a speed test app (like Ookla) to validate your download and upload speeds with your new router are working as expected.

There does seem to be an issue with posting speed on WXForum.net .. I'm getting a 20+ second pause also.
At home, I have AT&T Fiber (0.5Gb service), so I know it's not just an upload issue for me.

  I'll investigate.

I've found a fix to the slow posting issue (I think).  Let me know how it works now.

Great. I consider the issue solved.  Let me know if it starts up again.

Welp, here we go again, except now, it doesn't upload anything, ever. All failures. I added the other addresses from above, and none are going through. Rebooted the planet as usual. Now what....  :mad:

What the ... My uploads are obviously now going out, but my WL log says NOTHING is going out.  This is a new one. :???:

Any thoughts here? The basic reason I care is that WL freezes every upload for over a minute and makes my "live weather" useless until it unfreezes. The log still says nothing is uploading, but eventually, it does. Just takes forever.

Nslookup shows these IP addresses
Addresses:  44.155.254.4
          129.15.108.117
          129.15.108.116
          85.188.1.27

But only 44 and 85 is pingable. No response from the others.

Once again, you are a rock star. =D> Now that I took out the 129's (which were the good ones til now...:???:), and "notepaded" the two pingers, the uploads are under 10 seconds, as they should be. However, WL still says nothing is going out. Obviously something's jacked somewhere. Either way, I back in "normal" business.

Thank you again!

I think a lot of the connection issues described in this thread are because only two of seven CWOP servers have been up the past few weeks to months.

If you look at the bottom of http://status.aprs2.net/, only two of the servers are running.

Per long-standing Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), cwop.aprs.net points to a set of four servers in a round-robin fashion, only two of which have been running.
See: http://www.wxqa.com/cwop_info.htm
"Data are forwarded to the CWOP servers, using the round-robin domain "cwop.aprs.net" port 14580"

Here is a companion thread I started yesterday in the CWOP section:
https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=44363.msg451175#msg451175


Gory Details using nslookup on Linux:

CWOP.APRS.NET rotates among the same four servers

]$ nslookup cwop.aprs.net
Server:      127.0.0.53
Address:   127.0.0.53#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   cwop.aprs.net
Address: 44.155.254.4
Name:   cwop.aprs.net
Address: 85.188.1.27
Name:   cwop.aprs.net
Address: 129.15.108.116
Name:   cwop.aprs.net
Address: 129.15.108.117


First response to nslookup for CWOP.APRS.NET gives a different one of
the four first:

]$ nslookup cwop.aprs.net
Server:      127.0.0.53
Address:   127.0.0.53#53

Non-authoritative answer:

Name:   cwop.aprs.net
Address: 85.188.1.27
Name:   cwop.aprs.net
Address: 129.15.108.117

Note only two of the above have been working recently,
* 44.155.254.4 (cwop.ei3rcw.ampr.org)
* 85.188.1.27 (cwop.he.fi)
